We decorated 10 bags!

About our project: Upon looking for Earth Day projects and ideas I came across your site. I was very excited about it and submitted my local Girl Scout Committee to participate. I have to admit that our troop was doing and extended Earth Day activity, so the timing was off by a week and we did not get the interest in the idea as we would have liked. None-the-less, Earth day is an everyday preservation so we continued our studies and decorated our own grocery bags. The girls made some super designs and we delivered them to our commissary for distribution. The staff there were super and really talked up our bags to the patrons. It was a wonderful thing to do, since our girls were being shy about talking to 'strangers'. We enjoyed the grocery bag project and hope that it will be better recieved next year, so that we can involve all of our scouts! Thanks for such a great way to spread the word of recycling!!!
